need health care in america. one of the people who really got the people have asked me, what was it like? i tell people that barack obama, the most thing that i will say is driving him is that he watched his white mother died because of inefficiency in health care in america. i think that is the number one driving force, that he does not want to see that happen to americans, white and black, across the board. and he is going to fight with everything he has got because he watched it. he does not have his mother anymore, he does not have his father anymore, and i think he wants people like me who get laid off, 10,000 of us, and know that we need health care in america. thank god for people like sharon brower, the senator who is working hard -- like sherrod brown, the senator who is working hard on behalf of the american people. i worked 45 years of my life and got laid off. people have no idea what it is like to be laid off in america if you have never been laid off. we need this, and i thank god for barack obama, sherrod brown, in the people who are fighting for our rights to

the prospect of a woman of puerto rican heritage serving on the supreme court says a lot about america. says a lot about america. >> judge sotomayor has achieved academic and professional success, and i alaud her -- applaud her public service. but in the end her record creates too many conflicts with fundamental principles about the judiciary in which i deeply believe. i do not have -- it did not have to be this way. president obama could have taken a very positive step for our country by choosing a his tannic -- hispanic nominee whom all senators could support. president obama could have done so, and i regret he did not. i commend the ranking member of the judiciary committee senators leahy and sessions for conducting a fair and thorough confirmation hearing. judge sotomayor herself said the hearing was as gracious and fair as she could have asked for. i evaluate judicial nominees by focusing on qualifications which include not only legal experience, but more importantly judicial philosophy. judge sotomayor's approach to judging is more important to me than her resumÉ. i ask consent to put

they and other things threatening to the america future for enterprise. i am glad they had to stop and come back. i think the cooperatives are a much better idea than a government am run healthcare system for americans. it's failed policy and it's foolish politics. >> i still, governor in your state you ran a wonderful state lots of poor folks in arkansas and what are they going to do if they get sick? are they going to go to the emergency room? isn't that why we started? aren't we gabbing to square one? we have been having all of this impassioned debate. fooch are people welling and being yelled at. >> before this was an s chip we did our program first that put a safety net under people who's children were making too much money for medicaid but not muf f enough for the private insurance party. there was buy in. there was responsibility. it worked beautifully. when the president comes out and said there are 47 million uninsured americans the reality geraldo there are a lot of those people who couldn't be insured they choose not to be because they would rather spends their money on a new car ther

owner. she's against the president's plan to reform america's health care system. thank you so much for joining us. listen, i want to talk to, let's start with debbie real quick. debbie, what is your position in regards to the president's health care forum and the plans today? did you see anything about it that you liked in all of this? >> no, i did not. as a libertarian, first of all and foremost, i'm opposed to the government intervention in it to begin with. one of the things that i find particularly offensive about this is i don't have insurance, and i don't want insurance. there's no provision for me or people like me in this plan. >> you don't want health care insurance? >> mandatory insurance plan. >> you don't want health care insurance at all? >> no. i would like to have some insurance if it were affordable. in my opinion, it's insurance that has caused the problems in health care to begin with, and when we have a mandatory insurance program, this is basically a corporate welfare subsidy for insurance companies. >> yeah, you know, i hear you, debbie. i'm not exactly sure if
